Britain Remade responds to latest growth figures

Responding to the latest GDP figures Sam Richards, founder and CEO of pro-growth campaign group Britain Remade, said:

“While we should welcome today's news that Britain has clawed its way out of recession, we need to do much more to secure the economic growth the country needs.

“If we do not make it easier to build the economy boosting infrastructure - the homes, R&D labs, transport links and clean energy sources - that Britain desperately needs, we will be trapped in a doom loop of economic stagnation for decades to come.

“Unless urgent action is taken to overhaul our outdated planning system the prospect of the economy delivering the growth we all want to see will slip further and further away.”
